Post by: Lady_Hoshi on June 13, 2007, 01:42:09 PM
I say it's a great occasion for another cosplay gathering at Farout Toys.

For people who aren't familiar with Farout toys it is on Jackson st between fourth and fifth st.
Closer to fourth st.

I can give better directions if needed.

**********Update***********

Okay, I don't know how to close the poll, but Sunday has won and I already requested it off.

Cosplayers and non-cosplayers are all welcomed.

time: 11am till however long you want to stay.

I'm trying to have a new costume done by then, lets hope I manage to finish.

@*@*@*@*@*@Update@*@*@*@*@*@

didn't finish the new costume but I will still be there, just dolled up.

here is the street address to make things easier

161 jackson st #1

I've gone to the Obon festival in the past. It's fairly fun, and conveniently located. I've never bothered to cosplay for it, though.

No, that's Nikaku that's the second-floor store on the east side of Japantown.  Farout Toys is in a 1st-story store closer to the west side of Japantown.

the store is located on jackson between fourth and fifth.  Usually the street festival is on jackson between fourth and sixth, with a little bit extending out on fifth.  Far out toys will be on one end of the festival.  It's between a Nail spa and an insurance office.

and today he's having a maid cafe. I didn't post about it because I didn't know about it untill a few days ago and also thought it was going to be on sunday.  I figured it be would have been a fun surprise for the gathering.

the address of the store
161 jackson st #1

It's too bad I didn't work this Saturday, I actually start working at Farout Toys next Saturday (and every Saturday after that) from 1 to 4. I stopped by today though. ^^;

that's so cool that you will be working there.

I talked to Izzy and he said that the maid cafe would most likely be going on sunday as well.  I guess I should get some sleep now.  see everyone there.

I went Saturday night with some people after the No-Name showing. Had some good food. Saw some of the Obon Odori  (festival dancing). Saw a walking advertisement for the maid cafe.  Go today if you can!

If you missed this weekend's obon festival, the second-largest will be in Mountain View on 7/21-7/22. Looks like enough people on this thread missed this weekend, so I figure I'll start up another one for 7/22. Yes, you want to go to the Raging Waters picnic that weekend, too. :D

Well, I didn't see a whole lot of people this time around, but I still had a good time hanging at Farout.  I even picked up a figure that caught my eye back during the Cherry Blossom Festival gathering, though I wasn't sure which character it was or what anime or game she was from.  Anyone mind filling me in?

Here's the figure in question:

I guess the anime fan in me just continues to thrive, ne?
